Fashion magazines are notorious for reviewing the latest scents and are, in some senses, pimping them for the companies. (See the women's magazine "Lucky"--it's all one big ad for clothing, scents and shoes.)
I saw a recent "feature" in Vanity Fair recommending Etiquette Bleue and Nomade by Parfums D'Orsay like they were something new. And then that "faux" legend again...
"...her fragrance all in my keeping; softly she comes in the night." Lyrics, Gordon Lightfoot, "Softly."
Men's magazines articles are trashy, barely concealed advertisements and atrocious writing. I never buy them and if I do read them, it's at the bookstore with a cup of coffee.
